The Union Catalog of Foreign Periodicals registers titles of periodicals supplied by the regional, university and scientific libraries in Bourgas, Dobrich, Rousse, Shoumen and Varna regions in the years 1998, 1999 and 2000 in all fields of science. It's aim is to inform the specialists of various categories about the periodicals they can use, to enable the information needed access, to make the library stocks more convertible and valuable.
The Union Catalog of Foreign Periodicals had been published till 1993 traditionally on paper. After a certain break off we begin its issue again in a new easy to operate with electronic version. This Online Catalog is public, offers easy data retrieval and updated library database. A well-functioning online union catalog, based on the tendency to use to their best advantage the unlimited opportunities of the network and the resources of Internet is the aim of the compilers.
The structure of The Union Catalog is based on the geographic characteristic as a main. The libraries included in a definite regional division are alphabetically arranged. The comparison criteria are periodical title; keyword; classification index (UDC); year of obtaining and some others according to the specific users' needs. Information about mail and e-mail addresses and personal contacts is included in the Main Library Participants List. Search examples are shown in the Main Menu of The Union Catalog.
